Shashi Tharoor’s Shakespeare Avatar Gets Viral on Social Media

Eminent parliamentarian and Congress leader, Shashi Tharoor was in for a surprise yesterday when he found a Shakespeare in a new getup. The new avatar of Shashi Tharoor transforms him to Shakespeare. The transformed photo is doing rounds on twitter and has received more than 16000 likes. Someone impressed with Tharoor’s abilities in English grammar flattered him by making him look like the English poet, playwright, and actor – Shakespeare.

Tharoor was elated with the Shakespeare getup and reshared the post on his twitter handle. He said

The most flattering image going around on What’s App today — amazed that someone thought of making me into Shakespeare & then actually took the trouble to create this! Thanks to whoever did so (though i am completely unworthy of the honour!)

There was a mixed reaction from the tweeples with few appreciating the art and some felt otherwise. Rahul Roushan tweeted the image with an improvised version.

Shashi Tharoor doesn’t need any introduction. In brief, his bio reveals that he is MP from Thiruvananthapuram, author of 18 books and has been a former Minister of State, Govt.of India during UPA government. He is not afraid to speak his mind and is known for it. But he is more famous for the usage of English words which are difficult to understand and pronounce though he looks at ease with them. Whenever he comes out with a new word, the search for meaning spikes up and commoners struggle to spell, read and pronounce it. Some of the instances of his calibre are  “Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations and outright lies being broadcast by an unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalist, floccinaucinihilipilification”
